In 2006, I was lucky enough to photograph a band called Reuben backstage at the ABC in Glasgow on their support tour with Billy Talent.
As a massive Reuben fan, this was a big deal, but even more so that it was my first time ever backstage documenting a band. I was able to take photos of them before and during the show.
One of the final photos of Jamie, Guy and Jon just before they went on stage, was on the insert of their “What Happens in Aldershot, Stays in Aldershot” DVD sleeve.
Jamie Lenman was the singer and songwriter of Reuben. I photographed his solo set last year at King Tuts in Glasgow and shortly after Jamie got in contact to say that he liked the photos and to ask if I was the same Amy that photographed them years ago.
I asked to photograph him the next time he was in Glasgow and so, got to shoot his soundcheck and his live set, grabbing a few shots of him in the dressing room before taking the stage.
